There are currently no lakes with cyanobacteria warnings issued in the State of New Hampshire.

Advisories are updated daily during the swim season. Beaches are only listed here if the most recent fecal bacteria or cyanobacteria sample analysis exceeded state standards. Results are available through the OneStop database.

The Department of Environmental Services is dedicated to making more environmental information more readily available to more people while maintaining user confidence in the information. The information is the best available according to the procedures and standards of each of the contributing programs and of this system. The different programs are regularly maintaining the information in their databases, and the system is periodically being modified to respond to user needs. As a result, the system may not always provide access to all existing information, and it may occasionally contain unintentional inaccuracies. The Department has made every effort to present the information in a clear and understandable way for a variety of users. We can not be responsible, however, for the misuse or misinterpretation of the information presented by this system.
